We Need Your Help
School safety is our number one priority at Greenspun Junior High School. Many of the issues students deal with on a daily basis stem from their use of social media both during and after school. Twitter, TikTok, and Discord, just to name a few, are often negative platforms which students are using to engage in cyberbullying and inappropriate activities.
We are asking that you monitor your children’s cell phones and remind them that they are not allowed to use them during passing periods or in their classes. Inappropriate cell phone usage has been the cause of the majority of fights on campus, as well as destructive behavior.
In addition, we are asking that you do not text your child during class time. If you have an emergency, please call our office at (702) 799-0920; Ext. 4035.
